Garmin Forerunner 610

01 June 2011

The Garmin Forerunner 610 is the best sport watch we have reviewed to date. This versatile, responsive, accurate and well-designed watch is aimed at the high end of the market and has a price tag to match. We would love to see a faster charge time and a waterproof casing but, put simply, this is the best GPS sport watch on the market today.

Nike+ SportWatch

18 April 2011

We run the Paris Marathon with the Nike+ SportWatch and test it against the Garmin Forerunner 410. The SportWatch is a simple yet effective sport watch which tracks your time, pace and route easier than models twice the price. While not flawless in its performance, it's a reliable piece of sport kit for runners of all abilities.

Garmin Forerunner 210

01 March 2011

The Garmin Forerunner 210 has everything most runners would want from a GPS sport watch, without much of the on-screen customisation appreciated by very demanding runners with more money to spend. For those not enticed by analysis paralysis, this is an impressive device and a valuable training aid for athletes of all abilities.
